Today’s circa 1917 images take us to the City of Laramie, Wyoming, located in the southeastern portion of the State to Mr. Shoemaker’s Ford Garage, the Laramie Auto Company. The lead photo is one of three shots that exist of new Model “T” Ford cars being delivered to the owners. This picture shows an attractive woman decked out in a fur coat and hat with the Ford Garage’s dog in the seat behind the wheel of the car. This car is a Ford Model “T” chassis equipped with an aftermarket speedster body and splash aprons, pin-drive wire wheels and an accessory front radius rod brace.
The photograph below shows the Ford Agency’s storefront with a “Garage” sign above the door, a new Model “T’ touring car with wire wheels being delivered, a “Vacuum Cup” tire display in the left front window, and a center door sedan in the showroom window on the right.
